Joining an eclectic stretch of Toronto's St. Clair West, Graywood Developments' SCOOP Condos will add mid-rise density (and new retail) to a gradually evolving evolving neighbourhood. Located just east of Keele, the project's first phase will replace a surface parking lot at 1771 St. Clair West. Designed by SMV Architects, the 6-storey building was introduced in late July, with our follow-up story offering a first look at the project's amenities. Turning to the residential units, renderings of the 72-unit project offer a first glimpse of the suite interiors.

Featuring one and two-bedroom units, SCOOP's suites range in size from 484 ft² to 1,137 ft². Offering a reasonably diverse array of living spaces, the project's interiors are appointed by TACT Architecture. While the community-oriented amenities—profiled here—will include a library, communal dining room, and an outdoor garden, the suite interiors are designed as calmer, private spaces.

Seen below, a living and dining area opens out to a generously proportioned private terrace. According to TACT Lead Designer Michael Krus, the interiors are designed with a "European aesthetic," with simple, clean lines and usable spaces prioritized. Kitchens feature quartz countertops along with custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, while outdoor cooking is also an option in the warmer months. Each balcony and terrace features a natural gas connection, allowing for barbecues and casual al fresco dining.

Inside, the living areas feature oversize windows, bringing ample natural light into the suite. With 8'6" to 10" ceilings throughout the building, many of the suites—particularly the larger units—also boast an airy ambiance. Like the kitchen and living spaces, the project's bathrooms are appointed in a simple, modern aesthetic. The rendering below highlights a dark wood tone as an accent in the otherwise bright space.

Each unit will also come pre-wired with a high-speed internet connection, while a selection of upgrades and finishes allows for aesthetically customizable suites.
